After 20 years, the freeloader really ought to get off its pot and get a job!

Hi folks!

Found out I have a cyst on my wrist (that pain from two weeks ago). Hey that rhymes... gonna wait and see, sez the doc.

Decided that Bud Light Lime > Miller Chill. Surprising, since I do like MGD normally. Although it's hitting my empty stomach good

Produce market was meh- lots of tomatoes and swiss chard. Did get 2 yellow watermelons out of it, and a b*ttload of heirloom tomatoes.

I feel weird- I'm on the computer posting and the wife is grilling for the fam.

Howdy all. Convocation lasted about 2.5 hours. Sitting on bleachers. Ugh. My butt still hurts.

Worked on campus all day helping one of our techs get his schools ready for classes Monday. Also got a free lunch from a sales rep!

Told son to go apply for a job at this one place. He filled out app but didn't go there to turn it in. I hollered when I got home. He got nasty. I got nastier. He's off to go deliver the app.

Awww, that's no good! At least those aren't usually anything serious.

Well he said there were three treatments- 1) take celebrex for 2 weeks and it might go away or stop hurting, 2) stick a needle in it and make it go away temporarily, or 3) surgically take the dang thing out.

I voted 1.

I don't mind them in general, having been forced to have blood taken every two to four weeks since 1987, but hands are a definite no no to me.

Wife's had that done to each eye. Said it was surreal and weird. Personally, that creeps me out less than needles in hands.

I couldn't do it. Not in a million years. Not unless I was *heavily* sedated. Maybe not even then.

Mine ws to inject some Botox-like thing into my eye muscles to deaden them. That was the strong eye. It let the weaker eye work for about 6 weeks and then when the stronger eye started to return to focus, it tracked with the weaker eye.

Of course, I was wall-eyed on that one eye for about 6 weeks. Had great peripheral vision though.

Hey everybody! This is a drive by! Last few days have been hectic. Made an offer on another condo, received counter offer, made counter counter offer and was rejected. Closed up the condo. We won't be back until Thanksgiving unless we buy something and have to go down to close. Today we drove back to NC. We made it in 6.5 hours. Tomorrow is a long white dress meeting for the Eastern Star, so I'm working on the program. I have to make 10 lbs. of potatoes into potato salad. Hubby has lost his bow tie for his tux. May wear a purple tie with a black vest! School starts Tuesday, so maybe life will calm down. Have a great evening everybody!

From experience, 10 pounds of potatoes makes almost 15 pounds of potato salad.

They like to tease us with small percentages of precipitation but nothing comes of it.

TRUE! Although the one today was a bit warm even with the AC on.

I have a hang up on cleaning ball mice. I just can't stop from taking them apart to clean them. Some of them feel like you're off roading the rollers are so dirty.

I did 30 of them in the lab yesterday.

I used to clean mine all the time. They don't work right when the lint gets all built up in there! And I will sit there and pick every bit of it out.

I have a laser mouse now (or whatever it's called)

With these, the humidity turns that lint to a rubber-like blob that coats the 3 wheels. I found one this summer that the rubbery lint blob covered the entire white wheel. Yuck.

We replace these with laser ones as they break or wear out.
